Vitamins and minerals help give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and repair any damages that may occur throughout your day-to-day life. Eating a healthy, varied diet in pregnancy (and preferably well before conception) will help you get some – but not the optimal levels – of the vitamins and minerals you need for the healthy development of your baby.
It is best to get as many vitamins and minerals from the food you eat, but when you are pregnant you will need to take some supplements as well if you want to ensure optimum health for both mother and child. Do you know what vitamins and minerals are especially important?
While a well balanced diet should give enough of the macro nutrients required for you and your baby during pregnancy, there are many trace elements and co-factors required for good health, that will be almost impossible to get without supplementation with good colloidal minerals. Plus, if you are vegetarian, you also might find it hard to get enough iron and vitamin B12, even with a varied and balanced diet.
For both the mother’s health and the health of her baby, it is advised to take specific multivitamin and mineral supplements, especially ones that include the trace elements, during both pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding after the birth of the baby.
